Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large egg (or 2 egg whites) - lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
I didn't try these pancakes because they were gluten-free. In fact, I didn't even know they were gluten-free until I researched all of the ingredients and changed the recipe name today. I tried them because I test pancakes. That's what I do. So these were judged against every pancake I've ever tried - with wheat or without. The bottom line is that this is a terrific recipe. The pancakes are heavier than traditional buttermilk pancake, but not significantly heavier than many multi-grain pancake mixes or recipes. The texture is hearty, but not chewy. The peanut butter flavor was noticeable in every bite, but it was subtle enough that it could play a co-starring role with syrup or other toppings. Long story short... I liked this pancakes. You wouldn't know they were gluten-free unless someone told you. (This recipe was submitted in 2006. It was tested and photographed in November 2016.)

Add more milk or extra oat flour if you like your batter thinner or thicker. I like these with a little jam on top for the complete peanut butter and jelly oatmeal pancake experience.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank PromQueen for this recipe.

Made them without the cottage cheese, whole oats instead of flour, added a pinch of salt and 2 whole eggs. Love it! Definitely will make them again.

I made these two different ways - once with soy mile and no milk or cottage cheese and once with Greek yogurt in place of cottage cheese. The taste was good both times. I also put in some baking powder to add some poof both times. Kids loved em with a little Nutella and syrup.

The best thing about these is the ingredients - oatmeal, eggs (or egg substitute), a little PB, and milk. No refined flours, no sugar, no added salt, no added fats. A million times better than a pancake mix. Great way to get the family eating healthy. Terrific!

These are very filling but I didn't care for the taste. I used natural peanut butter and no vanilla, though. I put applesauce on top. I think I'd make em again and try different toppings, as the recipe is very easy and healthy.

I LOVE these pancakes! Nothing makes my morning better. The batter is thick, so I smooth it onto the griddle using a large spoon.

My husband loves PBJ, and the healthy aspect of this recipe appealed to me. I doubled it, for 2, but found I needed to add more milk so they would spread out. They are rather thick and stiff. Taste was adequate, but we agreed they are nothing to rave about. We will not make this recipe again.

If you try it, you might want to use an electric mixer. I did not, and the cottage cheese curds do not mix in.
